We’re subject to our biological drives. You know what I mean.
Unfortunately, biology has as its major interest big picture stuff; continuing the species and…well, that’s about it.
In the meantime, we have to live our lives. That involves working, shopping, cooking, cleaning, taking out the trash, paying tax and repairing the dishwasher.
Note that we have two jobs working simultaneously. One is the long-term family creation and perpetuation position; the other is maintaining the infrastructure. From the first flows the second, but while we have emotional, intellectual and gut investment in the first, the second is often an afterthought.
Maybe we’d choose better if we interviewed for both at the same time.
